The Madness of Stephen Harper and the Unusual Wisdom of Margaret Wente

According to the Ottawa rumour mill Stephen Harper is now so obsessed with Justin Trudeau, that none of his faithful flunkies dare mention Justin's name in his presence.

Lest he fall to his knees and start biting the carpet, or THEM.

And for more evidence of that all you have to do is look at the speech he delivered today at of all places the Canadian Heritage War Museum

Because it's crazy stuff. 

In a speech at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton on Thursday night, Harper took aim at several of Trudeau's past statements, from terrorism to China.

He noted neither the Liberals nor the New Democrats have supported his government's law and order reforms. Harper accused the opposition parties of believing criminals are victims of society.

Even though there are so many Cons on trial it's hard to keep up with action. Even though his government's crime bills have been rejected one after the other because they are so badly written or unconstitutional.

And when you have to rely on this routine to rile up the rednecks:

Harper also alluded to opposition criticism of his government's handling of foreign policy, referring to a comment Trudeau once made about admiring China and asked how many Canadians want to live there. "My point is that Justin Trudeau didn't really want to answer that question because the answer is too obvious," Harper said. "The best country and the best government in the world is Canada's!"

After selling us out to China...

You're either desperate or crazy or BOTH.

And since he followed that up by criticizing the RCMP for enforcing what's left of our gun laws.

Harper also reached out to gun owners, apparently alluding to a recent decision by the RCMP to ban a previously legal rifle, the Swiss Arms Classic Green carbine. Harper said it's completely unacceptable that owners of the weapons should be subject to an "arbitrary stroke of a bureaucrat's pen."

You really have to wonder whether he is still fit to remain in office.

Because not only is he sounding more deluded AND dangerous.

He STILL doesn't seem to understand that Trudeau is so popular because Canadians hate HIM so much. 

And that because he's been around so long most Canadians by now can't stand the sight of him.

For you know the situation really is critical when even some of Margaret Wentes's friends are deserting him. 

Something alarming happened over the summer – several of my friends came down with Harper Derangement Syndrome. “He’s gotta go!” fumed one middle-aged man who had voted for him three times in a row.

So, do they think Justin Trudeau (or Thomas Mulcair) would run the country any better? They shrugged. The question didn’t interest them. What does interest them is getting rid of Mr. Harper.

When nothing Harper says or does makes him more popular than Justin.

The Tories have blasted Mr. Trudeau for lacking substance, but the country doesn’t care. The pundits have blasted him for being vague about his policies, but people don’t care about that either. As Brian Mulroney aptly observed, Mr. Trudeau’s major platform is that he’s not Stephen Harper. For now, that’s enough.

And even our very own Marie Antoinette thinks his situation is hopeless.

The best thing Mr. Harper could do to improve his re-election prospects would be to undergo a radical personality transplant. Unfortunately, that is still beyond the means of science. He is who he is, and he can’t help it.

And as I pointed out the other night, she isn't the only one eh?

You know, I believe Margaret Wente may finally have had an original thought. Unless she also plagiarized that one from someone else.

He is indeed who he is, he really can't help it. He can't do the one thing that could save him.

Time is his enemy.

And by pursuing his crazed obsession with destroying Justin Trudeau.

He will only make himself even less popular.

And may well end up destroying HIMSELF...

hi Rev...I share your sigh. It really is outrageous. The Cons are the absolute limit, and as you may know I have an excellent graphic of Rona Ambrose as the Village Idiot. I thought nobody could be a worse Health Minister than Leona Aglukkak. But sadly I was wrong....

NOTE: To the Con troll in Port Coquitlam who has been bombarding me with foul and violent messages, that have no chance of ever being published. I'm happy to report that your vital statistics have been recorded.
Your activities have been reported. And you can shortly expect a knock on your door.

P.S. When did you move? And are you really still using Windows Vista? Doesn't that explain almost everything.

Sleep tight LOSER... :)

Hi Simon
I thought it was really revealing when the man in Wente's article who had voted for him 3 times now fumes "he's gotta go". That actually made me feel really good. It shows that people are finally waking up and Harpers "Believe what I say and ignore what I do" speeches is getting tiresome and this is just the beginning of the campaign!

Yes, actually read that Wente piece. Bad news for Harper, when she thinks he's getting bad for the brand.

I did a search of the IP address you posted. It appears to be from a Telus customer based in the vicinity of Burnaby, British Columbia.

hi anon...thanks for taking the trouble to do this. I removed a couple of identifiers like the address and the postal code,but will share them with the authorities if they don't already have them. I normally wouldn't share this kind of stuff with my readers. I receive dozens of ugly messages and veiled and not so veiled death threats every month, and they are like water off a duck's back. I make a quick record of them and then delete them. But this freak's deranged scribblings remind of a crazed religious fanatic who came after me with a knife a few years ago, and was intercepted just a few houses from where I lived at the time. And so vicious is his homophobia and his misogyny I fear he might hurt or kill somebody in BC and I would never forgive myself if that happened.
So thanks again...

hi Pamela...yes that is good news isn't it? I do think even a lot of his former supporters are getting tired of the man.I believe he is just clinging to office so as to pass Mulroney on the list of longest serving Prime Ministers. But time is his enemy, and his days in office are numbered....

Simon said...

hi lagatta...yes it wasn't a bad piece from Marie Antoinette Wente. And it is very good news. Because when people really are ready for ANYONE but Harper the writing is on the wall, and there is almost nothing he can do about it.

P.S. Damn. If I had known he was going to stick around for so long I might have run for Prime Minister myself... ;)

One of my friends in Calgary says he isn't as popular as he once was and she personally wants him gone.
It used to be messages from my favorite party were welcome--NDP.
Now I've received some from Elizabeth May and the Green Party. Welcomed those also.
Haven't received anything from the federal Libs., but they do have to promise to keep away from the B.C. Lieberals and their friends, because they all are in step lock with harper and his herd.
its gotten so bad with harper and his herd, I'd go and vote Green, if I thought they could defeat harper and his herd. I would care if they had experience or not. of the 3 other parties running any one is an acceptable alternative. Its ABC.
